Best Airport in the world is Incheon (South Korea), not Changi (Singapore)

Anywhere a MOS burger is located is pretty damn awesome in my books.

Have travelled through HKIA about 10 times over the past 4 years and have always had issues.

Baggage not arriving, long immigration lines, bad customer service, stupid unnecessary security points when transferring and every single visit I've been pulled to the side at immigration and no one will tell me why when I ask. Last time they wouldn't let me on the plane when flying to Aus saying I had no visa. When going through immigration in Melbourne no issues at all.

Prefer to avoid Hong Kong at all costs.

Fuck I hate how when transferring to Canada through the US you have to go through immigration, pick up your bag, go through customs and drop your bag off. The lovely TSA officer even threatened to revoke my US citizenship as I have a Canadian one as well.

just had a 5 hour layover in LAX. No internet or food and every seat was taken. Such a shithole.

Judging by what other people say it's not uncommon. Might be when you come from China?

Do love those airport lounges they have though!

Been there about the same with no issues. Maybe its your jinx airport?

10 minute taxi ride to El Segundo ... if you have cleared customs, that's a no brainer for food and drinks.

I've never had a problem in HKIA when coming in from China and heading onwards. Still prefer Changi though. HKIA involves a lot of pointless walking.
